The company’s invite for the event on Thursday features an image of a smartphone, along with the caption, “Unveiling of the latest stars in the Galaxy series.” With a front-facing flash module clearly visible in the image, Samsung appears to be pointing to the launch of its only smartphones with front-facing LED flash – the Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 – though the module is placed differently.

The Samsung Galaxy J5 and Samsung Galaxy J7 were launched first in China last month, priced at CNY 1,398 (roughly Rs. 14,300) and CNY 1,798 (roughly Rs. 18,400) respectively. The Android 5.1-based smartphones are dual-SIM dual standby handsets that will be available in Black, White, and Gold colours.
